General Advertiser (Newspaper) - September 28, 1845, London, Middlesex S ft f U-R D ArYr%PTE-MB|ji.28,' 1745- o HIS Morning failed the Npttjrig-ham and Folkftone to the North-ward. Remain the E^ral George, ^dciiral%nori,^ki?Hke.5aBd-wicti, two Firefhips, aqi the Dutch Admiral j the Sarah, q^w-ers, for Gibraltar ; Succefs, .and VictuallingTransport for- Plymouth ; and* rihe Amphitrite, for Flulhing. WindE.byS. The Antilope, Heyiham, from New-York, is arrived in jj the River. ' from Stockholm, in theHucqber., CO L O N D O N. O We have it from undoubted Authority, that the Meeting ^ at York, on the 24th Jnftant, was the moft numerous ever known, being compofed of alrrioft all the' Nobility, Gentlemen and Clergy of that great ?ounty. It was conducted as the Occrfion required', with great Serioufn'efs and Quiet. The Affociation was figned moit heartily and unanimoufly, and the Subfcriptlon which is going on, was very large and chearful. The City of York {hewed a laudable Example on that Occanon." The Lord-Mayor and Aldermen undertaking toraife and maintain Troops for their own Defence. The i'own of Kingston upon Hull is reiolved to do the fame. There appeared at Vork a fine Spirit in a Set of brave young Gentlemen, who purpofe to act as Volunteers in the Service of their Country, and began to form therii-felves on the very Day of Meeting. A SPEECH made by his Grace, the Lord Archbilhop of Y O R K-, at Prefenting an ASSOCIATION, entered into at the Caltle of York, Sept. 24, 1745. My Lords ; Gentlemen ; My Reverend Brethren of the Clergy ; IAM defired by the Lords Lieutenants of the feveral Ridings, to open to you the Reafons of our prefent Af-iembling: And as the Advertifemenr, which has called us together, is in every Body's Hands ; and the Faft now . fpeaks itfelf too plainly, a few Words will be fufficient on �p� the Occafion. Cj It was fome time before'it was believed, (I would to God D-t it had gained Credit fooner,) but now every Child knows it, that the Pretender's Son is in Scotland ; has fet up his Standard there ; has gathered and difciplined an Army of great Force ; receives daily lncreafe of Numbers ; is in the Pofleffion of the Capital City there ; has defeated a fmall Part of the King's Forces; and is advancing with hafty Steps towards England. What will be the Iffue of this rapid Progrefs muft be left to the Providence of God. However, wJiat is incumbent upon us to do, is to make the beft Provifion we can againft it; and every Gentleman, I dare lay, every Man in England, will think it his Wifdojn and his Interelt to guard againft the mifchievous Attempts of thefe wild and defpe-fate Ruffians. But the great Mifchief to be feared, which ought to alarm us exceedingly, and put us ihimediately on our Defence, is the certain Evidence, which every Day opens more and more, that thefe Commotions in the North are but Part of a Great Plan concerted for DUr Ruiri.-They have begun under the Countenance, and will be fupporwd by the Forces of France arid Spain, our old and inveterate, (and late Experience calls upon me to add, our favage and blood-thirfty) Enemies.-A Circumftance that fliould fire the Indignation of every honeft Englimman. If thefe De-figns fhould fucceed, and Popery and Arbitrary Power come in upon us, under the Influence and Direction of thefe two Tyranical and Corrupted Courts, I leave you to reflect., what would become of every Thing that is valuable to us! We are now blefs'd with the mild Adminiftration of a Juftand Proteftant'King, who is of fo irricVan Adherence to the Laws of our Country, that not an Iriftance can be pointed out,' during his whole Reign, wherein he made the leaft Attempt upon the Liberty, or Property, or Religion, of a fingle Perfon. But, if the Ambition and Pride of France and Spain is to' didate to us, we muft fubmit to a Man to govern us under their hated and accurfed Influence, who brings his Religion from Rome, and the Rules and Maxims of his Government from Paris and Madrid. For God's Sake, Gentlemen; let us conlider this Matter as becomes us, arid let no Time be loft to guard againft this prodigious Ruin. To your immortal Honour be it fpoken, you have confider'd it; and are now met together to call in the unanimous Cordentand Affiftahceof this great County. This County, as it exceeds every other for its Extent and Riches, fo it very naturally takes the Lead of the inferior ones. And it will be extremely to our Credit; give Courage to the Friends of the beft Conftitutidn in the, World ; damp the Spirits of its' Enemies at home; (j� any fuch can be conceived in Britain at this Dangerous Crifis) and be an InftruSion to thofe abroad; that there iyftiH Split and Honefty enough among us to Ibtnd up. in Defence of our common Country. This will be the Ufe'bf an Unanimous and Hearty Declaration of Fidelity to our Country, and Loyalty to our King. Sut the Times, Gentlemen, call for fomething more than this! Something muft be done as well as laid-And the Fund for our Defence, already begun and now to be propofed to this Great Alfetfr bly, will, it is hoped, from Reafons of publick Example, u C o 4-1 andnubUck Safety, meet with tb^ Jfojrty Concurrence of every Individual that compofes it. And at the lame Time that your Hearts go along with the Aflbciation, your Hpnds will be open to -fupport the neceffary Meafures $ Se|f-Jje-fence. Aslp ,You, my JUywend Brethren, I have not long had the Honour to prefide among You j but from the Experience I have had, and what I have always heard of your honeft Love to your Country, (if you jerjgut me to fey to) J will be your Security,to .the Pujbl&k, that you will-.df^Une no  Pains to inftrucl: and animate your People, nor Expence, ac- } cording to your Circumftances, to ftatid up againft Popery > and Arbitrary Power, under a French or Spaniih Govern- ; ment.--We (corn the Policies of the Cqnrt of Rome ; have no Interefts feperate from the People ; but on every Occafion, where our Country is concerned, look upon our-felves as incorporated with the warmeft Defenders of it; or, if we do defire to be diftinguifhed, it will be by our Ardor and Zeal to preferve our nappy Conftitution. Let us unite then, Gentlemen, as one Mant to flop thjs dangerous MifcjiieJ, ^pmwjbu^h Unjpn no ^lan fiirely can withdraw, or withold his Affiftance, who is not lifted into the wicked Service of a French or Spanifh Invafion, or wholly unconcerned for the Fate of Jiis Bleeding Country. May the Great God Qf Battles ftretch out his all-power-full Hand to defend us; infpire an Union of Hearts and Hands among all Ranks of People ; a clear Wifdom into the Councils of his Majefty ; and a fteady Courage ^nd Refolutibn into the Hearts of his Generals. Copy of the Affociation enter d into by ill of the Principal Manufacturers in Spital-fields,  We whole Names are be^jymto Subfcrib'd, Manufaftu-' rcrs and Ochers inhabiting in or near Spital-Fields, in ' the County of Middlefex, duly confidering the great and ' many Bleflings we enjoy under His Moft Sacred and 11-' luftrious Majefty King George, think it our Duty (at this ' Time more especially) to manifeit our ijwiolable Attach-* ment to His Ferfon and Government. JvVe do therefore ' declare our utter Deteftation ani Abhorrence of the un-' natural Rebellion now carriers, in favour of a Popifh  Pretender, oj fome of his- Fpplyi. And we do as much * as in us lies, folemnly Prpmife, and engage ourfelyes to , from South Carolina, but laft froraScilly, is loft on the Weolf Rock, near the La'ndVEnd but a^ the Crew were fav'd, except one.
